kevtree Let's be real, we all have high expectations due to the potential shown Friday and Saturday and at Tahoe, as well as of course BD.

This is from start to finish an exceptional Phish show. The jam style is unique, and continues to develop. This ambient style evolving from BD is quite interesting and any time I'm hearing new things in their jams I'm excited. We don't always need a I-V-IV rocking jam to constitute a good jam. I much prefer what happened tonight. The second set jams were all wholly unique, phenomenal adventures to experience live. The first set featured impeccable, near flawless song selection in my opinion, and the wombat was an unexpected delight, venturing from the ambient style its seen in jams past, to an unexpected peak, and back in to the main theme.

More on set two: I think every jam of this set has replay potential due to the cohesive and fresh styles that developed in them. But, this fluffhead--not only was the placement amazing, this is in my opinion the best fluffending of 3.0. Trey is rocking the sustain out in the stratosphere and page slams those keys wish Fishman blasting us all off to the friggin moon. Everyone collectively lost their shit. Perfect encore as well, with what appeared to have a little deviation from the norm at one point, ultimately rocking the house into complete submission absolutely.

I am stoked for Curveball.
